she drove me to school in that van. it didn't have a cd player, so she just put the family boom box in between the driver and passenger's seat. she didn't always play vietnamese music, but when she did, i always asked her to play this one song. i never knew the name of it, but i knew what it sounded like. and i knew how to sing along. it was the only vietnamese song i knew by heart. i don't know what the lyrics mean or why i loved it so much. the beginning of the song starts out with sounds of rain falling and i remember the cd cover, with the singer standing underneath an umbrella. i think her name was khanh ha, but maybe not. i'm too embarrassed to ask her what it was, but when i get home, i know i'd be able to find the cd sitting in our living room entertainment center.

Artist Links

Yoskay Yamamoto

Ricardo recommended that I look at this artist because of his color palettes. His work is like a fusion of Japanese print tradition and American pop art illustration.

Bovey Lee

Bovey uses tradition of paper cutting to illustrate new narratives. Influences from a wide range - contemporary media, Eastern tradition, decorative tradition, folk art, and more.

Shino Soma

Shino Soma's work is about human connection and history. Recently, her focus is centered around the relationship between being an individual and being part of a collective family unit. Her work references her own childhood memories, post-war Japanese culture, woodblock tradition, and more.
